Representation of women in the transportation workforce is stunningly low. What would happen to our mobility with more women driving transportation policies, planning, operations, and maintenance? During TRB's 6th International Conference on Women's Issues on Transportation, panelists discussed best practices for recruitment, support, and advancement of women in the transportation sector. In this webinar, conference speakers will continue their discussion about workforce challenges and overcoming them; approaches to attract, retain and advance women in transportation, and how these leaders see COVID-19 changing the workforce and work environment.

Featuring: 

  • Dr. Hilary Nixon, MTI Deputy Executive Director (moderator)
  • Laurie Berman, Director (retired), California Department of Transportation
  • Flora Castillo, President, Pivot Strategies, LLC
  • Jodi Godfrey, Senior Research Associate, Mobility Policy Research Program & Transit Safety & Workforce Development Programs, Transportation Research, University of South Florida

January 14, 2021 MTI Research Snaps Webinar: Local Policy for Automated Mobility

10- 10:30a.m. (PST) | Register to receive link. 

Autonomous and automated vehicles, which are both electric and shared—promise to reduce reliance on the personally-owned gasoline-powered car and have the potential to make our cities safer, cleaner, more inclusive, and more sustainable. Yet this vision can only be achieved with policy support at the city, state, and federal levels of government. Local policymakers specifically are uniquely positioned to harness these technological innovations.

Join us to learn how curb use and demand management; parking redesign; asset maintenance; right of way standardization; and cyclist and pedestrian-friendly projects can help cities meet emerging transportation demand more efficiently.

February 6, 2021 Sciencepalooza! 2021  -  Online

MTI is proud to be participating in Sciencepalooza! MTI will be awarding a $200 prize to the student(s) with the "MTI Innovative Transportation Project Award." 

Sciencepalooza! is science fair for all East Side Union High School (ESUHSD) students, whether they're a first-time science fair participant, a returning participant, and/or someone who wants to get a head start on a project for the regional science fair a few weeks later. Usually 700-900 students from different grade levels participate to create the most authentic "real world" work they can. These projects require students to create solutions, meet deadlines, and explain their product/ project.
